6 Cruise Lines You Didn’t Know Offer Military Discounts

military discounts
c/o Robert Fowler

I was drafted into the US Army in 1971 and served two years.


I am taking a cruise in a few weeks and I just got a $250 onboard ship credit for veterans. This is nice since I didn’t know about this discount when I booked my cruise with Princess a few months ago.

I bet a lot of other Boomers who are veterans do not know about this!


But, it’s true! Several cruise lines offer military discounts for active duty and veterans.

Here are 6 cruise lines that offer military discounts!
